MOCA Assistant Curator Lanka Tattersall and artist Maren Hassinger discuss the work of Senga Nengudi. Since the 1970s, Nengudi has pushed the boundaries of sculpture and performance. Nengudi brings a particular spatial and material awareness to her work, treating objects in a way that reference her body and the female body as a biological and social construct. Nengudi occupies a crucial place in the histories of conceptualism and both black and feminist abstraction.
